When we last got the scoop from local small-batch ice cream biz Elephant Garden Creamery earlier this year, they were working on the details of their very first brick and mortar shop. Now the artisanal ice cream maker has announced they have an address and a target opening.
Elephant Garden is heading to 2080 Commercial Drive in a new build that’s adjacent to a sushi restaurant, and steps from numerous other popular neighbourhood spots.
Currently in the construction phase of the build-out, Elephant Garden says they are hoping to be open later in August–great news for those summertime scoops.
Elephant Garden is the project of local siblings Bruce and Betsy Ng. The ice cream maker sells pints of flavours like Hong Kong Milk Tea, Malted Milk Chocolate, and Avocado Milk at places like the Vancouver Farmers’ Markets.
With the new shop, fans and newcomers to their line of signature ice creams, many influenced by Asian flavours and foods, will have what Betsy Ng promises to be a “safe and happy spot to enjoy ice cream” in a tranquil, comfortable space.
